MTS Cryo Stores UK Ltd is a secure offsite bio repository facility based in Nottingham. We are conveniently located near the M1 motorway and are able to provide our services to anywhere in the UK.

We started operating in 1999 under the banner of our mother company "Cool Repair Scientific Ltd". Since then the company has grown and so has the range of services we offer.

Our services include: Low temperature and ultra-low temperature storage of samples, serum/plasma/blood/stem cells and laboratory research material. We also provide a disaster recovery service for companies who want a contingency plan to safe guard their samples, should the worst happen.

Transportation and courier services for samples and/or freezers to anywhere in the world can be readily arranged.

Our services are designed to meet the needs of:

  • General Hospital
  • Private Hospitals
  • Universities
  • Pharmaceutical and Biopharmaceutical companies
  • Blood Banks
  • Commercial/ Analytical Laboratories
  • Clinical Trial Projects
  • Veterinary Centres
  • Fertility Clinics
  • Overseas Pharmaceutical Companies
  • Cell Bank Storage


Our services are designed to allow you to store your samples at our premises in our purpose built sample storage rooms. The facility has been designed to house up to 125 large capacity ultra low temperature refrigeration freezers and a number of cryo liquid nitrogen vessels. The facility has complete liquid carbon dioxide and LN2 backup facilities to cover for individual equipment failure along with constantly running backup freezers and standby units. For complete power failure there is a permanent diesel generator back-up supply. We have an in house team of Ultra Low Temperature Refrigeration engineers to deal with any emergencies that may arise. Our engineers have over 40 years experience of working with and handling low temperature equipment and are experts in their field.

We cater for the smallest amount of storage, such as a single box of samples all the way through to supporting complete research projects.

Our prices start for storage of a single box of samples, to a full shelf or complete freezer, up to any volume the client requires; and discounts on volume and the term of contract are available. Whether you require storage for a year or 15 years then we are sure we can help.

We are also interested in talking to companies who wish to incorporate our storage services into their commercial offerings and services.
